    Default 4 foot stocking ideas

    0 Not allowed!
    64 us gallon f00t
    2 powerheads with sponge and balls in filters one 200 watt heater
    current fish stock 2 angels, 3 red zebra danios, 1 pleco, 7 black skirts and 3 neons, and one betta, my betta loves the community tank, when ever i put him in his tank he just looks at me and one red tailed shark
    food to feed is tetra min and bloodworms once a week
    5 amazon swords and some other fast growing plants
    also got one piece of bogwood
    most of what i got came from my three foot tank

    any ideas about stocking levels, addtions ?
    im trying to get at least my tank to pay for the food at least every month, my pwc is 25 % of the tank each week, using a water conditioner as well for adding new water, changing to prime when my current conditioner is finished
    we are all on a journey.
    Apparently there is nothing that cannot happen today.

    Without know specifically what your filtration system is it's difficult to advise on stocking. But, assuming you're adequately filtered, I'd up your schools of neons and danios and leave it at that.
    What kind of pleco do you have? If it's a common it's going to get huge and you might want to think about rehoming him soon and getting something smaller like a bristlenose.
    Also not sure about the red tail shark and how compatible he is with the rest of your stock. you might want to check his profile to make sure it's safe to have him in there.

    15 g FW planted:2 male guppies, neons, pygmy corys, clown pleco, 4 types of shrimp, assassin snails

    To do that you will need two pairs of stockings. ...jk

    two resun filters rated for a four foot standard, with slight modificatoins in the container section, and by all the research i could do on the pleco a sailfin pleco. the neons i will up to at least 15, danios also to ten, the pleco i might rehome to my pond if and when neccesary. thinking of putting some peppered cories in for the bottom. The rts profile says he might be fine, personality determined, which he seems to be ok, as long as nobody invades his home, then his just a little puppy

    Difficult to be sure on the pleco with this shot. The gravel makes anything that digs a no-no.

    I'm not sure what you mean by making your tank pay for food, I assume you want to breed something?

    As mentioned before, up your schools to reasonable numbers.
